Meet Buddy, an eighteen month old Korean Jindo, and survivor of South Korea’s dog meat trade. Only 8 months ago, Buddy was living in appalling conditions, caged in a slaughterhouse and destined for someone’s plate. Now, thanks to the love, dedication, and hard work of many caring people he is thriving in his new home in Hampshire. He’s not yet ready to venture further than the garden, but his transformation from being 'shut down' and terrified to bundle of energy with an unrelenting enthusiasm for life is remarkable. He’s still understandably very wary of humans, but I was able to gain enough trust to photograph him in his wonderful new home. What a privilege! Interested in reading more about DMT rescue?
